CHRISTMAS SPIRIT by Rebecca York
Chelsea Caldwell is right back where she started, seeing ghosts and being the talk of the town. Yet there's something sinister happening in the small town of Jenkins Cove, and Chelsea might just be the person to uncover it.


It felt like this book couldn't decide what it wanted to be. Romantic suspense, paranormal romance? Each separate classification would've worked, unfortunately, mixed together created an unfortunate mess.

The characters were bland and dull, the plot got lost in the suspense/paranormal/killer/ghosts mess, and the romance left me utterly cold.


CHRISTMAS AWAKENING by Ann Voss Peterson
After ten years, Marie Leonard is back in Jenkins Cove determined to discover why her father's been murdered...But she'll have to deal with skepticism by the local chief of police, the man who broke her heard ten years ago, and a killer determined to silence her forever.


Though this one also had some paranormal elements, it was a much more straightforward romantic suspense story than its predecessor.

Unfortunately, the suspense aspect was the only thing I enjoyed about this one, even though the villain's motive left much to be desired.
The characters were bland (the hero was a self-pitying fool and I simply couldn't stand his moaning toward the end), and the romance tepid.


CHRISTMAS DELIVERY by Patricia Rosemoor
Lexi thought Simon, the father of her preteen daughter, dead for thirteen years, but instead of dead, he's merely been through hell, thanks to human traffickers operating in the small town of Jenkins Cove.
But now, Simon is back, determined to make whoever the culprit is pay...


This second-chance quasi-romance left me utterly cold. The characters were dull and bland, I didn't care about their relationship in the past (since we never got to see it) or in the now (because they simply weren't that compatible).

The main suspense arc of this "series" was never that interesting, so the resolution (rather predictable in all ways) didn't bring much satisfaction.

Midnight Kiss - Rebecca York

"What mythical creature has cloven hoofs and walks on two legs?" Matthew suddenly demanded.

Jessica's head snapped up.  "Pan.  The Greek God of the Forests.  Or the... the devil."

Release Day Review! Hollow Moon (Decorah Security #17) Rebecca York
Hollow Moon (Decorah Security Series, Book #17): A Paranormal Romantic Suspense Novella - Rebecca York

 

 

Did she save his life only to betray him? 

Werewolf detective Knox Marshall makes a near-fatal mistake when he tries to get the goods on a drug lab in isolated Western Maryland. Captured and used as a test subject in a diabolical experiment, he manages to escape. After nurse Maggie Leland finds him naked and wounded in the woods, she patches him up; but she’s hardly prepared for the drug flashbacks that spin his mind out of control or the side effects that turn him on. She and Knox get close quickly. He thinks he’s found his lifemate—until it looks like Maggie is working with the drug dealers. When he realizes he’s wrong, is it, too late to save her life?
 

 

Hollow Moon is another great read by Rebecca York. The characters are strong, compelling and draw readers into their story and the suspense keeps readers glued to the pages as Knox finds himself getting caught in a situation and struggling with a new relationship in one fell swoop. The story is full of danger and thrills and emotional turbulence that keeps readers glued to the pages.

 

I love Rebecca York’s romantic suspense books but I really miss her Moon series full of Marshall werewolves so when the Marshalls get involved in Decorah Security investigations, I just have to read them and I am happy to say that Hollow Moon is one such book that I really enjoyed. There was one problem though, I wish it had been longer because I wasn’t ready to leave the Decorah Security world behind, but I live with anticipation of the next one.

 

 

 

Hollow Moon is the 17th book in the Decorah Security series.

 

Hollow Moon is available in ebook at:

Amazon   B&N   Kobo

good book and characters
Hollow Moon (Decorah Security Series, Book #17): A Paranormal Romantic Suspense Novella - Rebecca York

Knox was a wolf shifter and knew he was being followed. Then he was  told to turn around with his hands in the air. Knox had smelled something wrong in the woods where he had went to spend some wolf time. He should have called for backup as he was the new member of Decorah Security and was a P I  but instead went off on his own and now had been caught. His cousin Cole got him involved in the agency that believed in using shifters talents and Knox liked that.  He was brought to a shack and put in a tin shed and the sick smell of drugs was in the air. Then his captors had put some drugs in a gas form and Knox had thought they were poison but started to hallucinate. He returned to wolf form and when one of his captors opened the door he took off toward the woods they did manage to shot him in his thigh but it went straight through. He was lying on the ground when a women came up to him. Hse was camping and her name was Maggie and she helped Knox and took care of his wound. He still had problems with hallucinating and ended up getting her off because he said they needed sex magic. Then Knox came to and was ashamed but Maggie told him not to be they they had sex but then his captors were coming one was Maggie’s brother Campbell. Maggie covered for Knox as he took off out the back of the tent and Campbell took her with him at gunpoint.

I enjoyed this novella but I would have really liked if it had been a full length book. Things happened so quickly and in this case they did feel very rushed yet I did enjoy the novella. I loved Knox and Maggie together. I also loved that the company used shapeshifters talents. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this novella and I recommend.

Release Day Review! Christmas Spirit (Return to Jenkins Cove #1) by Rebecca York
Christmas Spirit - Rebecca York

 

About the Series:

Return to Jenkins Cove

Christmas… Ghosts… Mystery… Romance…

Something evil lurks in the charming town of Jenkins Cove. When Sophie Caldwell devotes a room in her B&B to communicate with spirits, dangerous secrets rise to the surface, and the lives of three couples will never be the same.
Return to Jenkins Cove: Christmas Spirit... Christmas Awakening... Christmas Delivery... 
To get the whole story, read all three!

 

 

 

 

Michael Bryant hates people who claim a fake connection with the supernatural because his mom spent all their money on fake mediums in a vain attempt to contact his dead father. And as far as he’s concerned, that includes 99 percent of psychics. When he reads about Chelsea Caldwell’s supposed ghost sightings in the charming tourist town of Jenkins Cove, he books a room in her aunt’s B&B so he can debunk her fantastic story. But Chelsea’s not telling lies. A ghost really is trying to contact her—to get justice for hundreds of area murder victims. Against his will, Michael is drawn to Chelsea. Soon they are attacked by a mysterious watcher determined to stop their investigations. And because he’s fallen for Chelsea, Michael wrestles with the lies he’s told about his motives for coming to town. Worse, when Chelsea’s life is in danger, Michael discovers the only way to save her is to trust the words of a ghost.

 

 

 

Christmas Spirit is a fantastic story for the holidays, one where you can just curl up with a warm blanket and a cup of hot cocoa and get caught up in story full of romance and suspense.

 

Michael and Chelsea both are engaging characters that draw readers in with their holiday romance as both have to suspend their disbeliefs in order to push forward with their relationship. This keeps readers engrossed as they empathize with the characters while becoming caught up in the mysterious happenings that tests the couple’s beliefs.

 

 The suspense builds as Chelsea and Michael try to figure out why someone is after them and what the ghosts are trying to tell them. This keeps the anticipation building as the reader tries to determine the outcome as well and I have to tell you that it was I didn’t see coming. The story is well written and the characters are developed which made it easy to feel as if I was part of the town and I shivered with delightful chills with each ghost visitation.

 

Rebecca York writes some delightful stories and this one is definitely one of them as she brought Jenkins Cove to life during a the holiday season and I can’t wait to visit Jenkins Cove again and see if I can uncover more of the mystery.
